Telecommunication management is a fundamental factor in successfully operating networks and services. It provides various functions such as Operation & Maintenance (O&M), administration, performance, provisioning, accounting and security. Without it, neither a user can enjoy the benefits of any services nor can the business keep running smoothly. Traditionally the management frameworks were designed keeping in view the demands of specific technology or network. These traditional schemes such as SNMP (Simple Management Network Protocol) and TMN (Telecommunication Management Network) were more technology specific, network centric,centralized and/or weakly distributed management schemes.
